Accordion Album Wedding Card

A friend asked me to make a Wedding card a week or so ago, with the following brief: Three pages of an Accordion Album, with a bride on one, a groom on the next, and space for a message on the third, in the colours gold, ivory and red.
I'm not so good at making something to order - I prefer the freedom to make-it-up-as-I-go-along, but hopefully my friend will like it!
 I used the dies listed at the bottom, plus an old Cuttlebug corner die.
The dress and suit I cut by hand.

Dies used:



  1. Absolutely gorgeous, I'm sure they'll be delighted with this. It's bound to stand out from the rest! Fab! Chris xxx

  2. I agree with Chris! Love this - so elegant and pretty.

  3. Wow - another great way to use the accordion die! You cut the dress and suit by hand? WOW - they are wonderful. Just a lovely, unique way to wish a special couple the best.
    Cheers, Karen

  4. That's the prettiest wedding card I have ever seen! And you cut the dress and suit by hand??? I am stunned. Did you also write the the text by hand?
    Love, Nessie

    1. HI Nessie! Thank you! No - the text is just printed from my computer. There are loads of great free fonts at

  5. I have to carve out some time to play with the 3D Accordion/Bracket dies. You do such beautiful things with them.TFS!

    Come and see what I've done lately!
